in washington, d.c., a city named for our first president who i believe should be renamed the ronald reagan george washington. now unfortunately there are still many knowns out there that are not preceded by its words "ronald reagan" but the memory of our best, greatest president might be getting bester and greatester thanks to california representative and definitely not a contract killer darell issa. mr. issa new bill without rename the waters off the coastal u.s., pretty of all of those waters, actually, after mr. reagan. this slice of the world right here includes the united states and its territories it. there in the dark green. and the areas in blue extending from 3 to 200 nautical miles offshore are called the exclusive economic zone. darrell issa wants to rename them the ronald wilson reagan exclusive economic zone. >> stephen: folks, let's this makes perfect sense. i've always known the ocean was conservative like the republican party, it's full of great whites. and-- (laughter) i think it is also only fair dns -- >> (cheers and applause) we've got a republican crowd here tonight,

? >> i think that washington right now is a little short on some of the virtues and i'm not even the senior senator from rhode island but i want to do what i can to try to push a different debate into the discussion and to look back and see what people have said and done at some of the most important times in history, things that capture a particular piece of the human spirit. i think that adds a little bit of value. maybe only a little bit but you do what you can. >> stephen: do you think this is an important time in human history? >> i do. >> stephen: why is nothing happening then? (cheers and applause) if this is so important, why is nothing happening? (cheers and applause) >> because we're at a junction and the fight is where do we turn? what direction do we go? and pretty soon i think paralysis in washington is going to break. i think the grip of the tea party on the republican party is going to diminish. i think a more moderate republican is going to be able to a peer and we'll work together and move forward in to broad and summit uplands. >> stephen: rulely? how about that
